Four Out-of-state Billionaires Trying to Buy a US Senate Seat in Arizona for Trainwreck Blake Masters

Published

on

One of the hottest U.S. Senate races in the country is in Arizona, where Republicans are hoping to unseat Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly. But they’re wasting all their money during Arizona’s long primary blasting other Republicans, as out-of-state billionaires attempt to put their own candidate in the seat.

 

Blake Masters, who has spent much of his life as a Libertarian in California working for a Silicon Valley billionaire, Peter Thiel, has just obtained money from three more billionaires; New York’s pro-choice Winklevoss twins who contributed $50,000 each, and $75,000 from Texas libertarian billionaire Andrew Beal. A childhood friend of Masters said Masters convinced him to become pro-choice. Thiel, a Bilderberger who served on the board of Facebook for years, making his ties to Big Tech worrisome, has donated $13.5 million. 

 

Due to the excessive amounts of money, Masters has been able to portray Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a solid conservative with a lengthy history of going after the left — probably suing the Biden administration more than any other public official — as soft. In reality, Brnovich has been constantly targeted by the left due to his principled activism, with Democratic Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs filing 12 bar complaints against him and his staff attorneys over election integrity, which he barely beat. 

 

The types of things Masters says will eventually get him disbarred. While calling Biden a criminal is red meat for the base, attorneys have told me off the record he’s going to be disbarred soon due to remarks like that, and then he’ll be of no use to anyone with a disgraced reputation. 

 

Masters is such an arrogant candidate, constantly bragging about his youth and bashing the other candidates over their age (Brnovich is Gen X), he doesn’t care what damage his mouth is doing. He needlessly turned off black conservatives by declaring that “it’s black people, frankly” who are responsible for shootings. In reality, the most recent homicide statistics from the FBI show that there were 3,299 people killed in the U.S. last year. Of them, 2,594 were killed by whites, 566 by blacks, 738 by Hispanics, and the rest other or unknown. While blacks may commit more gun crimes proportionately, to just blame all blacks is irresponsible for someone who clearly thinks he’s very intelligent.

 

The Rev. Jarrett Maupin, a longtime activist in Phoenix who is now a conservative Republican supporting the meteoric rise of news anchorwoman Kari Lake for governor, told me that it’s a sign Masters is “unstable.” He was furious with Masters’ careless statement. “It’s irresponsible and it’s inflammatory. It’s catering to the worst element, one of the most irresponsible things I’ve seen this primary.” He cited a physical altercation Masters had with a veteran wearing a BLM shirt. “Goaded into violence by the left shows that you are not mature politically.” 

 

Sure enough, that kind of dog whistling is attracting racists. Andrew Anglin, the neo-Nazi publisher of The Daily Stormer, one of the most notorious white supremacist websites, just endorsed Masters. Another racist site, VDare, proudly endorsed him. Jewish Insider flat out portrayed Masters as an antisemite due to multiple incidents, including his use of a “poignant quote” from Nazi leader Hermann Goring in an article Masters wrote stating that that “the U.S. hasn’t been involved in a just war in over 140 years” — an insult to the millions of U.S. troops who lost their lives in World War I and World War II.

 

Unfortunately, Donald Trump was goaded into endorsing Masters. Thiel similarly got Trump to endorse another candidate he backed, J.D. Vance in Ohio, angering conservatives there who supported the solid conservative Josh Mandel. While most of Trump’s endorsements have been excellent, unfortunately there have been a few questionable ones. Trump’s insiders now say they are wondering if they made a mistake endorsing Masters.

 

Jim Lamon, a billionaire in the race, is literally giving Masters a run for his money, exposing him in endless TV ads. As a Libertarian, Masters supported open borders and legalizing hard drug dealing, calling hard drug dealers “heroes.” Originally from Alabama, Lamon, who became a billionaire solar industry CEO, has come under fire for “managing a group propped up by Obama’s green energy loans” then founding a “new business partnering with Chinese-controlled solar companies.”

 

There are two other candidates in the primary race, Mick McGuire and Justin Olson, but they have no chance, polling in single digits. McGuire has the GOP establishment and RINOs backing him, in part due to his loyal support of unpopular Gov. Doug Ducey, failing to challenge any of his lockdowns while an appointee. 

 

If Masters gets the GOP nomination, the Democrats will destroy him due to his needlessly inflammatory, careless statements. The only general election polls show Brnovich performing at least five points better against Kelly than Masters, and ahead of Lamon as well. Kelly has raised and spent more money than all of his GOP competitors combined, and looks on track to raise as much as he did for the 2020 special election, $100 million. Ninety-six percent of the money in the third party PAC supporting Masters comes from three billionaires. Only $190,000 from that PAC has gone toward defeating Kelly.

 

The bizarre thing about the billionaires portraying Brnovich as a RINO is that he’s considered the Ron DeSantis of Arizona by those who actually know his record. He stepped in and defended Arizona’s election integrity laws when Hobbs wouldn’t, all the way to the Supreme Court and winning. In contrast, his opponents just make statements but never follow through — they’ve never bothered suing the Biden administration or went after Ducey and lefty cities in Arizona legally —  things they could have easily done. This all came out at the only primary debate between them. The Week says Masters doesn’t even believe there was election fraud. 

 

Instead, his opponents dishonestly make up lies about Brnovich. Will Arizona’s GOP voters see through the billionaires’ money? The primary is Aug. 2.

With Representatives Like Kelly Daughtry, We Can Take Back America

Daughtry is a soft-spoken woman who gets things done

Published

on

When President Trump takes office next January 20th, he’s going to need a cadre of strong-willed Congressional representatives. It’s not enough to simply retake the White House, we need the foot soldiers with the unshakeable resolve to restore America.

In North Carolina’s 13th district, one candidate is firmly rooted in the values that made this country great, and will make it great again. Her name is Kelly Daughtry and, quite frankly, the nation needs many others like her.

Raised in rural North Carolina and the daughter of a U.S. veteran, farmer, lawyer, and entrepreneur, Daughtry has been a practicing lawyer for the past 25 years in Johnston County, where she makes her home. She’s been in the trenches and is not skittish about the slings and arrows that come with taking bold, conservative positions for what is right.

Clear Positions on Vital Issues

Daughtry is exceedingly clear on where she stands and on what will improve the lives of American citizens. She is a vigorous supporter of law enforcement and decries ‘de-fund the police’ movements wherever they arise. She understands that, by and large, the men and women in law enforcement are dedicated, hardworking individuals who, in many instances, put their lives on the line.

Similarly, Daughtry supports the U.S. military and our veterans. She knows that nations around the world with rogue leadership wish to do us great harm, and that we must maintain a strong military at all times. Not coincidentally, a strong military is the best prescription for peace.

On the border issue, Daughtry recognizes that the Biden Administration is firmly committed to swamping our country with illegal aliens. Why? Because the U.S. Census count doesn’t focus on U.S. citizenship, only the number of residents per county and state.

Hence, Democrats can gain a 20-seat advantage in the U.S. House of Representatives by continuing to flood our nation. This ploy is precisely why Biden and company have brought lawsuits against border states seeking to protect themselves.

The drugs, the crime — the murders — and the bursting budgets of towns and states trying to cope with the onslaught of illegals should never have happened in the first place. Daughtry knows what needs to be done, and done immediately.

Reversing Biden’s Reckless Agenda

Daughtry will go to work on restoring our nation, dismantling Joe Biden’s reckless agenda for America. She understands that Biden’s policies towards China in particular, and the bribes he has taken, have been nothing less than devastating for hard-working Americans and for our national security.

Most notably, she is firmly opposed to the Chinese Communist Party and their representatives who are seeking to buy farmland throughout North Carolina as well as every other place in the United States.

Biden’s out-of-control spending has particularly hurt North Carolinians. Farmers have taken the brunt of the punishment. The unending inflation that we’ve faced for 38 months also has dealt a crushing blow to North Carolina small business owners and families in general. One of Daughtry’s first agenda items will be to help steer our country back towards fiscal sanity, which in turn will have a direct impact on the cost of groceries and gasoline.

Americans First

Like President Trump, Daughtry understands the importance of putting Americans first and of safeguarding or voting procedures, elections, and indeed what it means to be an American citizen. Of note, she has no misconceptions about the differences between men and women and will work to stop the malarkey that the Left imposes on us every day, with their “56” types of genders.

Daughtry is a soft-spoken woman and in her quiet way, gets things done. If Donald Trump had an army of Kelly Daughtrys, the country would be on firm footing in relatively short order. She knows what hard-working Americans want and need, and is exactly the type of politician that North Carolina must send to Washington D.C.

It is not an exaggeration to say that in Wake, Harnett, Johnson, and Wayne counties in North Carolina, as well as the entire state and entire country, the 2024 election will be the most important in our lifetimes. This has been said about other elections at other times, but considering the damage that the Democrats have wrought on America, the time is now to reclaim our great nation and, with the likes of Kelly Daughtry, we can.

America is in decline because voters asked for it

Published

on

American voters have placed in office many people whose allegiance is to woke ideology instead of the public good. In many cases, these elected officials support policies that clearly are harmful to their constituents and to the nation.

Why would anyone knowingly vote for politicians who embrace policies that cause great harm? New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg is a case in point. DA Bragg doesn’t like to prosecute felons. Instead, bad actors are released immediately without bail. Bragg is not an accident. New Yorkers elected him.

President Joe Biden has allowed millions of unvetted immigrants to enter the country causing untold disruption in our cities and the threat of terrorism. Instead of deporting people who violate federal law by coming into the US illegally, we give them free rent, free food, free cell phones, free credit cards, free medical care, free child care. The same president has destroyed our energy independence, caused runaway inflation, and undermined our military readiness. Despite these misdeeds, millions of voters claim he is doing a good job and want him to run again in 2024.

Biden is using the legal system against his Republican adversary, Donald Trump, to deny him the right of due process, to confiscate his wealth, and to impose a lengthy jail sentence. “The law is being used to punish people you don’t like politically,” said Sean Hannity. Yet millions of voters continue to support Joe Biden.

These outrageous situations can be chalked up to an unconscious electorate. They voted for all these problems. The people of New York City are fed up with mounting crime. Yet they voted for Alvin Bragg, who is contributing to the crime problem by refusing to put offenders behind bars.

I am not describing a stupid electorate. Many of the voters who elect unfit politicians are highly educated. Mark Levin explains this phenomenon in American Marxism. He addresses the question that has stumped me for years: Why is it that so many intelligent, well-educated, affluent people in urban centers like New York and San Francisco have been seduced by the Left? Levin’s answer: “They are lured by the false hopes and promises of urban transformation and the criticisms of the existing society.”

When it comes to politics, many of our citizens have a myopic, under-informed viewpoint. They see themselves as compassionate people who want to help the disadvantaged. If they are white, they have been told that the white patriarchy oppresses blacks and other minorities. As a result, they may feel guilty about their own success. When it comes to immigration, they want to open our doors to anyone who wants to enter the country. Why? Because people in other parts of the world are suffering and liberals believe that we have a moral duty to help them.

What they are missing is that leftist policies have consequences. Bringing in millions of Stone Age people from the Middle East, for example, makes the US vulnerable to the disruption and violence that are tearing Europe apart.

An excellent analogy can be found in the game of chess. Amateur players look at the chessboard and only perceive the board as it exists right in front of them. They neither understand nor take responsibility for the consequences of their moves. Experienced chess players can see the board three to four moves ahead. They are aware that whatever move they make will entail consequences.

We have millions of American voters who resemble amateur chess players. They are completely oblivious to the consequences of their political choices. That is why California has turned from a garden in to a hellhole. The liberals who run the legislature in Sacramento are falling all over each other in the rush to provide free healthcare, free education, and welfare payments to illegal immigrants. But what about the consequences? Who will pay for all the freebies? What will happen to civil order and public safety when the government is no longer able to maintain the rule of law? No one wants to take responsibility for the unpleasant consequences of the leftist agenda.

Voting is no longer looked upon as a responsibility. “Elections are not held just for social participation,” said economist Thomas Sowell. “They’re not held just to vet our emotions. They’re held to elect people who will hold our lives and the lives of our loved ones in their hands, as well as the fate of the entire nation. To go out as if we’re voting for homecoming queen is madness!”

Sowell has suggested that for people who refuse to take the time to study the issues and candidates, “their most patriotic act would be to stay home on election day, rather than vote on the basis of their whims or their emotions, which is really playing Russian roulette with the history of the country.”

More than anything, we need informed voters who can opt for responsible candidates.
